Dear diners, for bookings of more than 8 people, the party must pay a £5 deposit per person.
Please note that Nimboo operates a buffet on Sundays from 12pm-8pm.
Nimboo is a hidden spot in Beeston committed to serving some of the most authentic Indian food in Nottingham. This family-run affair is helmed by a head chef with an incredible 26 years experience in creating regional Indian cuisine, his take on culinary tradition having graced the menus of top hotels and restaurants. Here, tucked down Beeston’s Villa Street among a clutch of other town centre services and eateries, Nimboo whips up a fresh and modern interpretation of (sometimes famously fiery) Indian street food that is bound to give your tastebuds a unique workout. To top this off, you can count on a warm welcome from friendly staff – Nimboo is an all-round fantastic experience when it comes to Indian hospitality.
The man in charge in the kitchen is Indian master chef Muninder Kumar, formerly of the Taj and Hyatt hotels in India and now thankfully quite at home in Beeston. Fans of real deal Indian food flock to Nimboo Indian Bar & Restaurant from all over Nottingham for its bold approach to traditional Indian cuisine – the restaurant’s unassuming premises down Villa Street belie the treasure that lies within, not least being a warm welcome and its surprisingly spacious, TARDIS-like interior, complete with well-stocked bar.
Truer to tradition than most Nottingham Indian restaurants, Nimboo Indian Bar & Restaurant’s list of vegetarian starters keeps pace with its meaty counterpart in terms of options. Go for the puri hot channa, chickpeas tossed with a blend of spices and served on puri bread, or the chilli mogo, cassava chips tossed in a homemade chilli tomato sauce, before tackling the highly recommended sharing platters for two: the Maharaja platter offers paneer tikka, onion bhaji, spring rolls and veggie samosa, while the Shahi sizzler presents a selection of tandoori delights like chicken tikka, sheekh and hariyali kebabs, and lamb chops. The seafood platter is just as lavish with a bounty of Amritsari-style fish, tandoori’d king prawns, salmon tikka and more. While the main courses cover all the usual bases plus that little bit extra, Beeston’s secret weapon when it comes to dining has some unique dishes up its sleeve courtesy of the experienced head chef. Our pick is the murgh khaas korma, delicate as a korma should be but given the royal treatment with a sauce infused with rose petals and sandalwood.
We were served wonderful food and received splendid service - knowledgeable and pleasant staff, a nice environment - this was my second visit, it won't be my last
The food is consistently great but our latest visit was my favourite yet. Every mouthful was so tasty, Makhani daal, lamb ghost and paneer kulcha - all absolutely delicious. Friendly service and very efficient.
A good choice for a family gathering. An extensive menu and excellent tasting food and brilliant service. All reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.
